Freedom is Coming: Songs of Freedom, Resistance, & The Underground Railroad
As we celebrate the uniquely American form of music we call jazz, there is, at its root, the painful history of enslavement, which brought together many of the cultures of which jazz was born. Freedom is Coming is a 2-disc set which features the Underground Railroad Freedom Singers and is produced by New Orleans Jazz National Historical Park.
